2 2013: Focus on Integration Base work – Enhancement of Integration to Manufacturing
3 Pick to production - …-2009 R2 Location with Bin and Inventory Pick/Put-A.Mix of roles: Warehouse posts production consumption or Production registers warehouse activitiesNot able to set aside items for dedicated activitiesNot able to have a document for movements (use reclass. jnl)
4 Pick or move to production NAV 2013 Location with Bin and Inventory Pick/Put-A. No mix of roles; Ability to set aside items for dedicated activitiesInvt. Movement document available for planning and handlingProcess with existing Inventory pick ”co-exists” Requires separate posting of Consumption Journal
6 Pick or move to production NAV 2013 Location with Bin and Inventory Pick/Put-A.Dedicated: bin content is not available for pick Dedicated Bin boolean added to Bin and Bin Content Bin content is available for posting, e.g. Sales posting remove item from any dedicated bin... You can reserve items on a dedicated Bin...NB: WMS – existing functionality: Bin Type Code takes items out of ”Available to Pick Qty”
13 Integration with Manufacturing SummaryInventory Movement documentAllow for stage bin for inventory pick lovationsEstablish a more flexible defaulting systemFlexible Outbound flow – back to warehouse
14 Integration with Assembly All warehouse configurations supportedATS flow, easy:To Assembly: Invt. movement, Warehouse pickFrom Assembly: Post Assembly to a default bin, warehouse processes pick it up from thereATO flow, more difficult:Only one posting - this implies that components are available prior ”auto-consuming”Default bins widely usedTo-Assembly Bin: Inventory movement, Asmb lines bin codeFrom-Assembly Bin: Default per location card or change on Asmb. Header.
15 Integration with Assembly Known limitations – Candidate for V8No flow like Open Shop Floor Bin are suported – a pick needs to be registered for every assembly BOM item.Solution concept: Items moved to the default To- Assembly bin will be grabbed first by the create pick algoritm without creating a pick (a mini overpick scope).Mixed ATS and ATO flow, difficult:Designed so that both flows are defined on one sales order line. This meets customer requirements for efficient sales order tracking and price calculation and limitations of ERP solutions (like create two lines one ATS and one ATO) does not surface.The solution includes certain rules about the sequence of operation, e.g. to ship the ATO quantity before the inventory quantity.
16 Integration with Service (& Job) Service order Lines is now a source doc for the warehousing system (similar to Production Order Component lines)Only Release-to-Ship functionalityOnly for WMSService and Job – Candidates for V8Release-to-Move functionality no whse shipment but whse pick to dedicated service bin (WMS)Inventory movement to dedicated service bin (Invt. Pick locations)Start up on integration with Job (V8)
18 First let’s start by some Refactoring Location ”Orange” – White without Directed Put-Away and PickAdded default bins and made some adjustments to avoid errors when two bins are equal on take and place lines.Added to all testsRefactoring of integration between Reservation and Quantity available to Pick.”Reserved Pick and Ship Qty.” field replaced by a functionClarification of concepts with ”Qty. available to Reserve” and ”Qty. Allocated in Warehouse””Qty. Available to Pick” has been thoroughly tested.

20 Item Tracking Item Tracing ” Your team did a great job! The time is so much faster, the report so much cleaner.” a partner” Exponential redundant records are fixed. Awesome Job!!!” Escalation Engineer Scenario with transfers and production, Before: Item Trace No Components = 831 lines Item Trace with ALL Components = 5,480 lines After: Private Fix No Components = 52 lines Private Fix with ALL Components = 60 lines
21 Item Tracking - Reservation One critical scenario with deletion of Whse. pickSales Order has no ITWhse. Ship created, no IT,Whse. Pick created, IT gets specified, registerIT synchronized with Sales OrderDelete Whse Shipment and possible partial Whse Pick, IT sticks to the new Whse Shipment2013: possibility to delete IT populated by pick from sales order.Ability to remove reservations before creating negative adjustmentsSeveral bug fixes
22 Profiles Yet to come all work related to creating profiles. This has a big impact for WMS stakeholders that don’t have to change the default settings at each installation or upgrade.
24 Reasons to technical change Platform changes that impacted the ADCS solutionNo Com support on the ServerSocketbus adapter, ComComDiscontinued Database UsersClassic Application server => NAS on NSTGoals for refactoring:Simplifying installationPerformance
26 NAV 7 ImplementationTrue Queue optimization: tasks gets assigned to first available NST, not like 2009 Round Robin implementation where tasks are sloted and might wait for a time out if waiting for a long task.
27 Installation and Setup Install the additional ADCS components – VT100VT100 changesweb.config file – specifies the location of the web serviceMultiple Service tiers setup in the Web.config fileChanged Queue-mechanism to central queueCreate and publish ADCS Web Service – exposing Code Unit 7714Create the users that needs access through the handheld deviceSetup the warehouse employee needs to be set for using ADCSAll other NAV specific settings are as usualStill not supporting Warehouse scenarios with dialog boxes that requires user interaction such as warnings if the Bin Capacity Policy is set to Prohibit more than Max CapacityNote Upgrade path :Upgrade stepsUninstall old – and install new components (Vt100)Existing warehouse users are upgradedNew ADCS users needs to linked to the warehouse usersExpose the webservieAnd they are up and running
